Today was my turn to share how I style my faux leather leggings and I’m so excited!! I wear these literally all fall and winter. They are my go to for just about everything and a major staple in my closet.
1. Layering with pieces you already have
An easy way to style leather leggings is to use pieces that are already in your closet. Everyone (ok maybe not everyone but still) has a plaid shirt and plain sweater in their closet. Throw them together and you have the perfect layered look. I paired it with a pair of booties but knee high or OTK boots would work well to!
2. Faux Fur Vest
Another way to style is with a longer sweater and faux fur vest! Such an easy way to keep warm as the weather starts to get colder and the holidays approach. Although not extremely dressy, this is a look i would wear for thanksgiving!
3. Casual Look
Take a long t-shirt (this one was a little longer and looser on my pre-pregnancy), layer it with a graphic sweatshirt , and throw on a pair of your favorite sneakers and you have an easy casual look! I love to run errands in something like this. I miss those days lol
4. Long sweaters and a pop of snake skin
Ugh missing my extensions and lighter hair haha but another favorite of mine is just a long sweater to cover that booty and a pop of color or print. I love the look of the snake skin print on these booties ! Also, this sweater is a MUST. It’s from amazon and can be worn off the shoulder. I wore a bralette underneath since the cuts make it a bit see through.
5. Layering with a faux leather jacket
Who else loves a little leather on leather action? Cause I know I do! This may be a little too matchy matchy but just such a simple outfit to throw together on the fly! Accessorize it with some hair pins or a headband and you are set!
6. Casual with a jacket
This is something I wore so much last year and will do the same this year. Any jacket will do but love the black and brown together.

Happy August! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here!
Although this year has been the craziest one with everything going on, I feel like it is moving insanely fast! I cannot believe it is August already. Jackson will be 3 weeks old this Friday, and that in itself baffles me, where has the time gone?!
Anyway, back to what we are here for! It is finally Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale!!!! I look forward to this every year to get some items for fall at a discounted price. They are usually items I have had my eye on. I tend to wait until I see some of them go on sale because lets be real, I do not want to pay full price lol. I will also be adding some dupes for some of my picks, incase they are sold out by the time we can shop the sale. I did this last year, which you can find here, and you guys loved it!
I have some of the items from previous years so I will try and share some of those from my last years post! If not, I will try and do a quick try on if the items fit and if I can find them with moving and all! I was hoping to be able to get to Nordstrom to try some things on, but with COVID-19 and having a new born, that just cannot happen!
Important Dates to Note:
August 4th – Icon level cardholders get to shop the sale.
August 7th – Ambassador level cardholders get to shop the sale.
August 10th – Influencers level cardholders get to shop the sale.
August 13th– All Nordstrom cardholders get to shop the sale before it opens to the public.
August 19 – The sale is finally open to the public! Everyone can shop the sale (including me!!).
Also, I just want to note: Please DO NOT feel like you need to open a credit card to be able to shop it early and get what you want. I do not believe in opening credit cards to just “get a sale.” I myself do NOT have the card and will be shopping along with the public. So please do not feel like you need to get a credit card!!!
Tips for Successful Shopping:
Go onto Nordstrom and preview the sale. You can save the items you like to a wish list, which you can access and find the items quicker when you are able to shop.
If you are unsure a size will fit you, I recommend buying at least two sizes. Nordstrom has an awesome return policy and you can easily return items for free in store or by mail. I always over order just to make sure I can get the correct size.
Not it is time for my picks! I have been eyeing a bunch of these pieces for a while, so I am hoping I can get my hands on some of them but even if I can’t that is okay!
I sometimes wear shorts during the winter to bed, especially when we crank our heat up so these cute flannel ones were the perfect find. Wearing a medium. I also found the warmest/ cutest thermal tops that I ordered in every color LOL also wearing a medium here.
Wearing a small in the skirt and a small in the sweater. As you can probably tell by no, outfits like these are my go-tos. Something cute that can be transferred to any season. I already know I can wear this skirt for any! The sweater is also long enough to wear with leggings which is a win for me.
Ok how freakin’ cute is this pajama set. I also love it with the robe with the leopard detail, and it is a walmart find!! I got the pajama set from tj maxx but linked similar ones. Both steals and both perfect for those cold days and nights. Wearing a small in pajamas and medium in robe bu sizing down to a small.
As you all know Amazon is my one stop shop for EVERYTHING lol. I get home decor, furniture, work stuff, clothing, shoes, swimsuits and so much more from them. The quality is usually great 95% of the time, but the key is to read reviews and know what you are buying. I also wouldn’t buy anything with a low rating.
You can also head over to my stories or Amazon highlight to watch me talk about all of these items, if you want to hear what I have to say haha BUT anyway, here we go.
This will probably be one of my go to fall looks. It is so easy to dress it up or down with flats or booties and just so simple and cute. I am wearing a 4 in the tank, 6 in the jeans (levis run small for me I always size up), small in the cardigan, 9 in the flats, and 9 in the booties but ordered a 9.5 as they are a tiny bit snug.
I am wearing this cardigan in a small but it is definitely oversized. Haven’t decided if I am a huge fan of this one yet only because I have one so similar but still haven’t decided. Wearing a 9.5 in my booties and a small in the top. I honestly just paired this quickly, but you can do so many things with it. Wear it with a dress or skirt, so many options.
I am NOT a fan of crew neck tighter tees, so this is not up my alley, but if you are, these shirts were seriously so comfortable and would be super cute for laying pieces in the fall. You get a pack of 2 and this one came with a white and black stripes shirt. I am wearing medium but it was way to big on my body but fine for my arms. I like the loose tees better for layering. They are currently unavailable but come back in stock often.
Ok I thought I was getting like a chiffon material here but its cotton. Still super cute but I am looking for more of the chiffon one. I am wearing a small and otherwise really like it. I might still keep it, not sure yet haha
This will be another fall favorite outfit without a doubt. I just love graphic tees tied up and think its super cute with jeans. I love it paired with the leather too! Wearing a small in the skirt, medium in tee, medium in jacket (size up for layering), and 9.5 in shoes.
THIS THIS THIS. Obsessed. It is a bit see through so make sure you wear nude or white undies, but its amazing. IF their are any brides getting married in the fall or winter and need a cute dress this is it!. The sleeves are also super stretchy. Wearing a small.
So I looked and this dress is a small but its very big. Nothing a belt can’t fix because it is super cute. Also the jacket doesn’t match, I know, but I was looking for a grey Faux Leather Coat and found this color and am loving it.
Hi Babes. The few Nordi Dupes that I shared this past weekend have been a major hit, and I have been getting requests for more. The nordi sale opens to the public on Friday, but most things are sold out, so here are some dupes that would be perfect for the fall! There are a lot of animal print & fall tone items in this post haha
** I will continue to update as the sale goes on **
I ordered these dupes as soon as I saw them and will share more about them when they come in. The price just automatically pulled me in, and I get a bunch of things from windsor and know the quality is great.
I ordered this skirt as soon as I found it because I was eyeing the one for the nordstrom sale and was so sad it sold out so fast. I will share more about the dupe when I get it, but it has good reviews!
I have the spanx leggings that are part of the nordstrom sale (right), and love them. I just hate the price tag, even on sale. I would rather find a pair I like for cheaper and have a few. This pair has great reviews and I can’t wait until they come in. — UPDATE — They came in and I am in love. They are the same as spanx and a 1/4 of the price. You NEED them.
I am 100% ordering this! I love the two toned better than the one toned wrap and just think its perfect for the fall. I would pair this with a long sleeve white top (probably turtleneck), and leather pants.
It is that time of year!! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is honestly like Christmas and I can’t wait! I tend to stock up on some fall staples and favorites during the sale because their prices are just THAT good!
I will constantly be updated this post, so make sure to check back throughout the sale. Check below for my picks based on their catalog!
Some Background & Timeframe
If you are a card member, you can get early access to the sale starting July 12 at 12:30pm. Otherwise you will have to wait, with me, and access the sale on July 19. Once it hits August 5, the prices will go back to normal and you won’t be able to get anything for the sale again.
It does seem like it is easier and better to shop if you have the card, since a lot of the items sell out in the early access, but you do not have to have the card to enjoy the sale.
